Just Sew Helen
Hello, and welcome to my page. I’m Helen and live with my husband, two sons & two elderly cats. I work as a Midwife & use all my spare time for sewing. Just Sew Helen is a small textile business based in the West Midlands, UK, and was inspired by my love of all types of sewing including embroidery, appliqué, dressmaking and soft furnishings. My business took a year to plan & was created in 2016. Having sewn for most of my life, I have developed a small business to create personal textile keepsakes, from children’s drawings to Christmas ornaments. I work with families whose babies are likely to be born with problems & using my existing knowledge, skills & compassion I offer special gifts that may give comfort at difficult & emotional times. I have the honour of being awarded #QueenOf Textile Baby Loss Gifts. The underlying aims of my business are to provide exclusive personalised gifts and to raise awareness around Ovarian Cancer following the loss of my mom to this disease in 2015. I make regular donations to an Ovarian Cancer charity and take every opportunity to share the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer on Social Media. I have had the pleasure of making many lovely, online friends amongst the crafting community.
Design & Creation of Textile Keepsakes & Remembrance Gifts.
In my shop you will find hand crafted fabric items created & personalised using embroidery and appliqué techniques. Keepsakes can be made with cherished fabrics or personalised as required. I enjoy working on commissions and welcome the challenge of working to customers specifications. Many of my items are focussed around pregnancy & baby loss and, although devastating for families, I love this unique & exclusive side of my work.
